With names like those, she might be a celebrity

Mary: I have four favorite boy names. Do you want to hear them?

Me: Sure!

Mary: But you can't laugh, okay?

Me: Right-o.

Mary: Vigor and Measure . . . what! I see you trying not to laugh! And then twin boys . . .but I think you're going to think they're weird. But I really like these names. Promise not to laugh?

Me: Yes!

Mary: Okay. For twin boys, Waste Not and Want Not.

Me: I'm sorry, I can't help it!!!

Mary: Oh, and I also like the names Majestic and Emmett. Emmett is from Twilight. You're not going to blog about this, are you?

Me: No, no, no, of course not.

Mary: Well if you do, make sure you say that I really like the name Emmett, okay?

Me: Got it.

Yes Emmett is a good name...
And there is a reason why it is good that teenagers and have young kids don't have kids :)

No to try to make Mary seem the least bit rational, but on our trip this weekend we listened to the audio book "Seventh Son" by Orson Scott Card (which by the way Mary loves to describe to anyone who will listen that it should be R-rated)(which it isn't!)--anyway, the son's names are Measure, Vigor, Waste Not, Want not, Alvin and Calvin and I can't remember who I'm missing.

Whew! She is rational - hooray! (as for Brother Card . . . I think the jury's still out)
